Women of the Bible: a Visual Guide to Their Lives, Loves, and Legacy
Author: Carol Smith, Ellyn Sanna, Rachael Phillips
Series: Illustrated Bible Handbook series
My rating on a 1-10 scale: 8.5
Number of pages: 283
Time period: Bible times
My overall opinion: This book is a great resource for any person looking to learn more about the women mentioned in the Bible! The pages are sleek and glossy, each one packed with tons of information and color photos. You’ll learn about everything the women of that time did, from divorce to death to housekeeping to roles in the church to marriage, among many other things. Towards the end, there’s a paragraph about each of the women mentioned in the Bible, named or not. There’s also a list of all the named women, complete with references. There is a lot of information in this highly valuable resource.
